English term or phrase: Rough dry
Vorrei sapere a cosa corrisponde "rough dry" in questa frase: Clean instruments/devices to remove organic soil, then rinse and rough dry.
L'unica traduzione che ho trovato è "asciugare senza stirare". Ovviamente non mi sembra adatta al contesto ;)
Grazie

asciugare
Explanation:
rinse and rough dry= sciacquare e asciugare

A mio parere significa semplicemente asciugare.
Sciacquare e asciugare sono spesso azioni collegate.

Una conferma potrebbe essere questa:
Rough-dry=dry, dry out - remove the moisture from and make dry

Reference information:
nel tentativo di dare un senso a questo "rough" mi sono imbattuta in almeno 3 possibilità, corrispondenti più o meno ad asciugare in centrifuga, asciugare rapidamente, e dare un'asciugata - non saprei scegliere, anche perché personalmente non l'avevo mai sentito prima, ma magari queste info ti aiutano un po'


verb
[with object]
dry (something) roughly or imperfectly:
she continued to rough-dry her hair

"Drying here is mostly accomplished by wringing and in centrifugal extractors, and is known as "rough dry," which completes the processes in the wet-wash ..."

e comunque è strano, anche perché il senso dovrebbe essere, come dice elena, asciugare bene
